Day 14 Repost: it’ll have to be a tree stump

Yesterday a tree cutting crew showed up at my mom's house to cut down her Ash tree. It had Ash Bore (which I believe is a beetle) but perhaps I should google that before I embarrass myself. It was really cool watching the tree cutting team working, I always imagine it is a great job for all those kids who are always climbing trees.

And in the true fashion that only a 93 year old can come up with she said, "Well I suppose it should be something about to achieve a good end you need to be fierce on the way"
